Lebanon Historically And Today
Primarily an agricultural town, Lebanon was settled in the late 1600s and incorporated in 1700. The combined farms, rolling fields, crystal lakes and historical landmarks create an idyllic pastoral setting for cozy rural living. Lebanon is certainly one of Connecticut's best kept secrets. This small, tight knit town offers recreational programs for all ages, including sports, summer playgrounds and special public events. The Lebanon Green is one of the largest in New England, measuring a full mile in length. The cultural and natural features of this quaint community have changed little since its incorporation. The area is dotted with charming bed and breakfasts, attractive country inns and motels. Lebanon's economy is supported by visitors seeking hiking, biking, cross-country skiing and the town's numerous antique shops, historic sites and museums. This stunning community is one of the select 25 towns on the Quinebaug-Shetucket Rivers Valley National Heritage Corridor. Created in 1994, this beautiful corridor is one of the last untouched and pristine areas in the Northeastern United States.
